Whether you blame human stupidity for pouring toxins into the atmosphere out of our tailpipes and smokestacks, like me...or like some others believe it's a chemtrail conspiracy ...or prefer to call it the End Times, like GloryGal2009 who sent me this video - something is killing the trees. The videographer tells me that there has been no lack of rain locally.
The video from Ohio was posted on Youtube as a response to an earlier film I made in New Jersey back in last October from a hot air balloon. The same bareness of trees, when they should have been at peak fall color, was apparent. The soundtrack is from a radio interview about forest decline with Betsy Rosenberg of the Green Room. The extreme and accelerating death of trees has been going on since at least 2008, if not well before.
